2010 BMW 3 Series Diesel 335d 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Review

I have waited years for performance without guilt - the 335d might just be the perfect guilt-free car. The motor is deceptively quiet and capable of shoving 3800 lb of car 0-60 in 6. Lacking sports pkg it doesn't corner like a go kart, but body roll never feels like a problem, there's no understeer, and no sway in the tight stuff. Ride is supple and smooth. Feels like it is made of iron. This is a very fast, solid car - dangerously fast in fact. The combination of smooth ride, blazing acceleration, and virtual lack of motor noise gives you no standard point of reference - you can be doing 95 and have no idea.


Best Features

The diesel motor makes the most beautiful rumble. Mileage is decent but not in hybrid league (>20 always, but not 30s in city). But handling, braking, amenities, and zoom are out of hybrid league. Not a wash though: with 335d you get 60% of hybrid mileage but ten times the grin.


Worst Features

Cup holders are silly. Base stereo is very average for 45k car. Bluetooth and ipod should be standard, not optional.

Review

Sold Audi a6 2.7t-too big for my needs. 3 series, though smaller than I wanted, is a better size. Miss the radio, larger comfortable seats, larger trunk for golf clubs-but BMW gives Superior free maintenance for next 4 yrs, huge savings in fuel consumption-diesel is evident only at start up and low mph-highway speeds, you cannot tell this is a diesel. I would have preferred an Audi quattro a5 a4 or a6 with more features, but hard to pass up the ecocredit, more aggressive dealer pricing than local Audi dealers - strong resale-all made the BMW less expensive over the next 2-4 years. Fit and finish are great-navigation is very good, but Audi navi is better. No complaints but economics 'drove' me to BMW.


Best Features

ENGINE - runs like a Scared Rabbit FUEL Mileage - better than EPA TIRES - worried at first about tread life so jury still out, but run flats have been very quiet and handle well TRUNK - holds 1 set of golf clubs MAINTENANCE FREE 48 mos - this and the Engine pushed the BMW past the Audi head to head


Worst Features

TRUNK - want to hold 2 sets of golf clubs RADIO - base radio should be better Cup Holders - poor Storage - INFERIOR Back Up Camera - NEEDS this option All these improvements can be found on the Audis - if only Audi had a TurboDiesel offering in the A4, A5, and A6 - then no brainer - AUDI WINS

Review

If you like engineering to perfection this is the car for you. Great handling at high speeds and you can get great mileage is you want to back off. This is my 5th BMW and my favorite. Well maybe not my 2002 was great, but not reliable.


Best Features

The engine is truly amazing. Where else can you get a 150mph car and 40 + miles to the gallon.


Worst Features

The basic HD radio stinks. C'mon for 45K you could do better.
